UPDATE: Did Sandy Gallin Flip Out in Bev Hills?

Yesterday Your Mama had an ongoing conversation with someone we're going to call Mister Cryptic who contacted us to let us know that Mister Sandy Gallin, music manager, entertainment mogul, and house flipper recently sold a flip-house in Beverly Hills.

Mister Cryptic gave us a Summit Drive address right in the heart of Beverly Hills and indeed the house located at the given address was purchased by Gallin in November of 2005 for an undisclosed price. Property records show the house at 5,969 square feet with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.

Mister Cryptic also tells us the house is a "grey clapboard, New England style house," that was overhauled and decorated "in his customary tasteful faux-English style with leather books and silver framed photos of Dolly and Barbra." Which if true, is priceless information. Price-less.

Mister Cryptic also tells us that he heard Gallin wanted to sell the place furnished and intended to price the property in the low $20 millions. So, according to our tipster, not long after the house reno was finished, Miss Gallin threw a big party and invited all sorts of attractive and rich ladies and gentleman who might be interested in purchasing the re-habbed mansion. And Mister Cryptic tells Your Mama that he heard a buyer materialized a week later who was willing to pay in the low $20 millions.

Wonder if the silver framed photos of the gurls came with the house?

Other than our usual dose of cynicism and mistrust, we don't have any reason to doubt Mister Cryptic. But at the same time, Your Mama has not been able to find any listing information on the house and property records have not been updated to reflect a recent purchase. So we're really just grasping at straws.

So if anyone out there can corroborate and fill in any gaps about this house and it's possible flip sale, be sure to get in touch with Your Mama.
